RSPCA branch wants to welcome Vegan Fayre to Kempsey animal shelter

An animal sanctuary near Worcester is planning to host its first Vegan Fayre – if there’s enough demand.

The RSPCA Worcester and Mid-Worcestershire branch, which is based at The Holdings in Kempsey, has set a date for Sunday August 14.

But the charity says the event is still in the early planning stages and is trying to gauge how many people are likely to attend.

A spokesperson said: ‘This is only at the very tentative planning stage and although we have already had some interest from vendors who are said to be selling vegan cakes, vegan sushi and scotch eggs vegans and others, we really need to be able to give them feedback on the likely number of people attending the event. »

Anyone interested in attending is asked to visit the branch’s Facebook page and respond to the Vegan Fayre event.

Business owners who wish to have a stand at the event are also welcome to contact the RSPCA branch.

The Vegan Market is coming to Worcester in June

A vegan market has already confirmed it will return to Worcester this summer after a successful first visit to the city last September.

The event, on Saturday, June 18, promises vegan street food vendors, artisan bakers, craft brewers, ethical jewelers, small batch soap makers, artists, charities and zero waste champions .

From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., it will take over the main street and Cathedral Square, with stalls and food trucks offering a huge range of cuisines.

In September, merchants came from near and far to display their vegan products.

The Worcester Vegan Market will also come to the city center on Saturday, October 22.

The event is organized by Vegan Market Co, which runs similar markets across the country in conjunction with councils and business improvement districts.

It will soon launch an online vegan marketplace, where independent producers can collaborate on unique, sustainable and ethical items.

We reported earlier this month how a popular vegan restaurant in Worcester made it to the Food Awards England 2022 final.

Be The Change has two locations in the city – a restaurant in Friar Street and a cafe in Cornmarket.
